The bombing of the Russian airliner reflects the long conflict between Islamic extremists and Egypt that has spread south to the coastal fantasy land.21:26 25.11.15 | 0 comments
If Israel gives up Golan, this will probably be in the framework of an agreement with Syria to halt support for Hamas and other Palestinian groups. As a secular governnment, it is not far fetched that Syria would decrease support to the Palestinians to the level that Syrian support becomes only verbal as in the case of Jordan. Israel has a lot to gain from giving up the Golan. So does Syria. The Palestinians may lose out. Giving up the Golan may buy Israel some time in having to resolve the Palestinian question. Such a bold move such as withdrawing from the Golan will also lead to easening up of the pressure from the U.S. The time bought will likely benefit Israel only until the demographic timebomb explodes and the Palestinians in historical Palestine become a majority. In an ideal world, its best for everyone that both issues are dealt with in a just way.
